Yeah, Sunshine has been great. Best day ever Friday and real good today as well. I was super tired from all the pow lines on Friday, so didn't really give her too hard today, but awesome nevertheless.

I have to get a SSV seasons pass again next year. I found a place in LL that is pretty awesome (out of bounds) but it is tearing up my board. I almost never wreak boards at ssv but LL is claiming alot of my base and i broke my machete there this year. Its getting pricy...

Yup, I broke my T7 there early this year, and POSSIBLY broke my Virus there on Friday. LL is great but it's like riding a board through a cheese grater!

You guys can keep breaking boards at LL, I'll put up with the sore leg I have from riding nothing but powder for 2 days at SV

I've said it before, and I'll say it again...F*ck Lake Louise

I prefer snowboarding to iceboarding

The park at LL is sooooo much better than ssv. If you know where to go there is pretty unreal stuff at LL. The out of bounds section i have been riding gets 0 traffic. On 2 weekend days there is no one tracking it out, it has cliff drops, pillows, trees, knee to waist deep pow.

However, if ssv would just put their park on a tree'd run, i don't know if i would ever go to LL. I bought a LL seasons pass last year but i think that next year i will be back at SSV now that more of my friends have avy gear.

There are some great in bounds stuff too that almost never gets touched. Took Arsenal fan in there last weekend so he can vouch for the area! Yesterday we made it in there by about noon and were the first people in. Small cliffs/drops up to about 10 feet, tons of powder, a couple trees. It's heaven in there!!!

The LL park is fantastic, I'm a park wuss but I'll do the M and L stuff at LL.

Where is this area you speak of? Off of the platter? Also, is there a crazy amount of rocks/core shots in there? Im trying to only ruin 2 boards this year.
